Service and Assistance Animals

Service Animals VS Assistance Animals

service animal is a dog* that is trained to do work or perform tasks for a person with a disability.

An assistance animal is an animal of any species that, by its mere presence, provides comfort and/or support to an individual with a disability. An assistance animal is an accommodation and therefore, must be approved by Disability Support Services.
